NEWTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- At AHIP Institute 2014, McKesson Health Solutions’ executives David Nace, M.D., and Andrei Gonzales, M.D., will share the latest trends on how the healthcare industry is transitioning to value-based reimbursement. In the face of a changing insured population and ongoing regulatory change, payers and providers are seeking ways to increase affordability and access to healthcare while rewarding providers who deliver efficient and effective care.

“Today’s marketplace is full of experimentation with value-based models,” says Dr. Nace, Medical Director at McKesson. “At AHIP, we’ll present the latest research findings and discuss what they suggest about how to make the transition based on each organization’s needs and priorities.”

The session, “Payer and Provider Insights on Reimbursement Models” will be held on Thursday, June 12 at 4 PM PT. It will navigate attendees through the complicated mix of payment models in the market today and demonstrate which reimbursement models are gaining traction and why, based on exclusive research data. In addition, the McKesson executives will provide details on how value-based reimbursement models can be effectively scaled and supported with IT as well as share their predictions on the market in three to five years.

The AHIP Institute 2014 event will gather healthcare industry leaders across the country in Seattle from June 11-13. McKesson will answer attendees’ questions and provide information about how the range of McKesson solutions can serve as the connective thread between providers and payers, helping them to address today’s market challenges.
